Located near the Dead Sea in Jordan, the Wadi Mujib Siq Trail is a great water adventure during the hot summers. Life jackets are provided by the park.
The trail is managed by the RSCN and is closed in the winter because of flash floods. Check out our tutorial on flash floods in Jordan to see Wadi Mujib in the winter.
The trail is in the Mujib Biosphere Reserve, the lowest reserve on earth. The Mujib Nature Reserve was recognized by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve in 2011:
The complex drainage system in Mujib Nature Reserve is characterized by three large catchments (Wadi Mujib, Wadi Hidan and Wadi Zarka Ma'in) with permanent water flow throughout the year. Several other perennial wadis are also present in the reserve including Wadi 'Attoun, Wadi Abu Retarna and Wadi Shgeig. Numerous springs, like 'Ain Zara and Hammarn Albani, also occur along the wadis. Due to the presence of these wadi systems, the site has been recently identified as a wetland after the review of wetlands in the Middle East in 1995.
